Biotechnology

A Chinese scientist recently claimed to have created the first genetically modified human embryos. Using a technology called CRISPR, he made twin baby girls resistant to HIV before they were born. This opened up serious debate across the world on the implications of this technology.

Can we really program biology, and if so how? What are the implications of designer babies? Should humans live forever?

Quantum Computing with D-Wave

D-Wave’s Leap service is the first cloud based quantum application environment that gives developers real-time access to a live quantum computer. In this video, we’ll use the Leap service to build a simple application to monitor a crop health sensor network.

Entanglement, superposition, tunneling, there are some crucial concepts for us to understand to be able to harness quantum technology and through animations, code, and explanations.
